Just like having a flat tire, you can't fix it without the spare 99% of the time.
So, let's head for the exits on this one. Go get your 95/98 CDs from Ebay or such and replace that missing part.
BIOS has a password. Boots from HD. Floppy A:\ works. CD ROM works.
No install CD. No Serial number.
Is there a forum for a Windows 95 question? My neighbor has an old PC with 95. He has no disks. The HD has c:\windows\options\cabs
But he does not have any numbers, serial keys, etc.
Windows will not load. Is there a way to create a 95 Boot disk / A drive / and reload 95 ? But should the Reg Editor run first to try and locate the 25 digit serial number in the existing version of Windows 95 ?
The old 95 PC has no network connections but it has a CD Rom. Is there a way to DL and create a bootable CD on this XP home PC, use that CD to boot the old 95 PC and install Windows 95?
Thank you from New Orleans.
